ASA stamped U2

Hi All:

I see some of the ASA stamped Ultra2's going for a premium price. Are they much better made than the newer bats? I know the new ones are hot but they just break too damn easy.

Thanks:

James

james i don't think they should be going for as much as some people think they should,but hey that is just me.yeah they might be slightly better in durability,but not the much that some will say,to deserve the hike in price some want($300 and above from some).

To all,All i use are older U-II, I use 2 that Over 5 years old. They are better then current U-II bats. Even Miken will tell you so.Only thing that comes close in the new Ultra special edition. BUT i don't use them for BP,i rotate them EVERY time i hit,an other players don't use them.Just thought you would like some input.

I had one and used it for two+ years then it sat for another and last year I believe it was sold it to a
40's-ish player who I verified plays ssusa.
They are definitely more durable.

I have one of the 2000 ASA stamped UII's that I picked up from a youngster. I am not playing anymore so would be willing to let go if anyone is interested. It is used but I have never hit it.

I was told by our ASA commisioner, that even if the U-2 has an ASA stamp on it, it can't be used in our Sunday night Senior league >????7

#6,
That's because it never went through the Testing certification phase.

no it was tested and was legal till 1 jan 2004,than banned for ASA play.
kenny is your league just ASA stamp only,the ones i play in up here are like that but say no senior bats,i see so many trying to sneak a u-2 in and that is in the open age div.its ok,b/c i have a lady virus to combat those little turds,after i get their u-2's tossed,LOL i'm a mean old bastich.
our senior league doesn't need them,we go from 49-82,so no need to have senior bats for a league like that..
